Introducing: Terrestrials

Podcast cover
Read more

Radiolab for Kids Presents: Terrestrials. Terrestrials is a show for people of all ages that explores the strangeness that exists right here on Earth. In this episode, Sy Montgomery, an author and naturalist, shares the story of a color-changing creature many people assumed to be brainless who outsmarts his human captors. If you want a SPOILER of what the creature is, read on: It’s an octopus. We hear the story of one particularly devious octopus who lost a limb, was captured by humans, and then managed to make an escape from its aquarium tank—back into the ocean! The tale of “Inky” the octopus calls into question who we think of as intelligent (and kissable) in the animal kingdom. Learn about the storytellers, listen to music, and dig deeper into the stories you hear on Terrestrials with activities you can do at home or in the classroom on our website, Terrestrialspodcast.org. Find MORE original Terrestrials fun on Youtube. Badger us on Social Media: @radiolab and #TerrestrialsPodcast
